LEGO KidsFest is a fun day out with the LEGO lover in your family. The event takes place at convention halls throughout the country. Each year, about 5-6 cities host this event. If you have the opportunity to attend one in your city, I recommend you go. It’s a lot of fun. The event coming to Cincinnati will be at the Duke Energy Center.
Kids will have the opportunity to build with LEGO at about a dozen stations throughout the event. The event will last for 4-hours, and then the next group of attendees come in. You want to arrive at the beginning of your session and stay until the end. Some highlights of the event are the Build A Bridge competition in the central area of the hall, Design a City Building in the back, and the Huge Mosaic wall that everyone creates a little part with 1×1 LEGO bricks. There’s also a LEGO store right inside the event, just in case you don’t get enough LEGO action during the show!
Win FREE Tickets to the Friday Session
The Cincinnati LEGO KidsFest is broken up to 5 session dates/times. Each session is exactly the same, the LEGO KidsFest people just only let you hang around for 4.5 hours (which is 1 session time). We have Friday session tickets (4 tickets) for the 4:00-8:30pm time slot.
LEGO Robotics at KidsFest
If you are interested in seeing LEGO Mindstorms NXT Robotics in action, there is a station for this. However, robotics is so in-depth that you won’t have time to sit with the robotics kits long enough to appreciate what they can do. If you’re interested in learning about LEGO Robotics, I would recommend attending a LEGO Robotics Camp or Junior LEGO Robotics Camp — you’ll get much more time and come away with an incredible technology education as well.
